REACH/15/6/0 REACH/15/6/1

Formulation of flame-retarded expanded polystyrene (EPS) to solid unexpanded pellets using HBCDD as the flame retardant additive (for onward use in building applications)

Production of flame-retarded expanded polystyrene (EPS) articles for use in building applications

21 August 2017.

The authorisation shall cease to be valid on 21 August 2017 with regard to the holders of the authorisation who have not submitted a review report by 21 February 2016, unless a decision to withdraw the authorisation is adopted earlier in application of Article 61(2) and (3) of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006

In accordance with Article 60(4) of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, the socioeconomic benefits outweigh the risk to the environment arising from the uses of the substance and there are no suitable alternative substances or technologies available in sufficient quantities.

However it is expected that a polymeric flame retardant, once its successful testing and certification has been completed, will become a feasible alternative and available in sufficient quantities to meet the estimated demand by 2017.

The authorisation holders are required to submit a report to the Commission on a three-monthly basis on the available quantities of the polymeric flame retardant on the market and on the progress towards substitution of HBCDD.
